Printing from your own laptop[edit]

  1. Software Installation
    1. Download and install FTDI Drivers.
    2. Download and install ReplicatorG.
  2. Software Configuration
    1. Open ReplicatorG.
    2. Choose the menu File > Open... and select the STL file you want to print (It will probably be in your downloads folder if you got it from a web site like Thingiverse.).
    3. Choose the menu Machine > Machine Type > The Replicator Dual.
    4. Choose the menu Machine > Connection (Serial port) > /dev/tty.usbmodem1411.
  3. Generate GCode from your STL file.
  4. Click Connect to device. (If you have trouble, see Connection Troubleshooting below.)
  • Connection Troubleshooting
    • Connection error: The serial port named '/dev/tty.usbmodem1411' could not be found.
      • It may not be turned on and plugged in.
  • Printing Troubleshooting
    • It stops printing midway through.
      • Are you browsing the Internet memes with Replicator in the background? It can't print very far in the background. Alt-tab/command-tab to bring ReplicatorG to foreground every time it stops and it will resume. This is one of the main reasons to start using the SD card to print: You can use your computer for other things without slowing down or stopping prints.
